Krystal D'Costa Krystal D’Costa selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the social sciences, including anthropology, research, and philosophy. She blogs about anthropology, technology, and urban life at Anthropology in Practice.

This week in the social sciences on ResearchBlogging.org:

  • What comes to mind when you hear the word “stalker“? Though men are typically associated with the act, Rita Handrich of The Jury Room discusses traits common to female stalkers.
  • The author of Genealogy of Religion suggests that we make a better attempt to understand Gozer the Gozerian. He uses this infamous Ghostbusters character to support the historical analysis of religions, proposing that we can overcome our hesitation to discuss current religions by thinking critically about those that have come before.
  • Franco Bejarano of Culture Potion explores the childhood classic Hansel and Gretel and finds possible evidence of shamanistic traditions in the depiction and demise of one of the lead characters.

I’ll be back next week with more from the social sciences.
